Statement by the Honourable Cathy Bennett, Minister Responsible for the Human Resources Secretariat, on Compensation Disclosure

Today there was an error made when the Compensation Disclosure lists were posted under the Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act.

The safety and protection of our employees is our first priority. The Provincial Government sincerely regrets and apologizes for this error. We will work to rectify any issues with employees internally as necessary.

The incident was caused by human error and we took immediate actions to mitigate potential risks. The information that was posted was immediately removed from the website and measures are in place to prevent access to employee personal and private information.

An investigation is underway into this matter and appropriate measures will be taken to ensure that this human error does not happen again.
